```										@ Mr. Pulkit .. can u give the method by which u solved and gave the answer.
------------------------------------------------------------------
The last 3 digits of any number is the remainder when that number is  divided by 1000, so we just calculate powers of 17 up to 256 as  efficiently as possible and reduce them modulo 1000 as we go along. (From here on "=" will mean congruent to)  17^2 = 289 (mod 1000) 17^4 = (17^2)^2= 289^2 = 83521 = 521 (mod1000) 17^8 = (17^4)^2 = 521^2 = 271441 = 441 (mod 1000) 17^16 = (17^8)^2 = 441^2 = 481 (mod 1000) 17^32 = 481^2 = 361 (mod 1000) 17^64 = 361^2 = 321 (mod 1000) 17^128 = 321^2 = 41 (mod 1000) 17^256 = 41^2 = 681 (mod 1000) So the last 3 digits of 17^256 are 681.
